[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Rockville Centre 2-22-1971 by L.L. No. 1-1971 as Ch. 29 of the 1971 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Authorization by Board. No person shall move a building or other structure upon or across any street of the Village unless a permit therefor has been issued by the Village Clerk upon authorization by the Board of Trustees.
Application form. As a prerequisite to securing a permit, an application must be filed with the Village Clerk, containing:
The name and address of the applicant.
The size and structural details of the object to be moved.
Its present location and the place within the Village to which it is to be moved.
Certificate by the telephone company and Electric Utility Department indicating that satisfactory arrangements have been made covering the relocation of the utilities.
Each application shall be accompanied by a certificate of insurance in form approved by the Village Counsel and issued by an insurance company authorized to do business in this state, running to the Village, guaranteeing that the applicant has provided public liability coverage of not less than $100,000/$300,000, and property damage insurance in the amount of not less than $50,000/$100,000, to save the Village harmless from all claims, actions and proceedings brought by any person for injury to person or property resulting from or occasioned by any fault or default by the person to whom the permit is issued or anyone acting thereunder on his behalf. The policy shall also protect the Village, in the sum of $10,000, against any damages caused to any street trees or other public property by reason of such house moving. In addition, every applicant shall post a ninety-day completion bond assuring the reerection, modification, alteration or other work to be done upon the building in conformity with the plans approved by the Chief Engineer or his deputy.
The fee for any license required by the provisions of this chapter shall be at the levels fixed from time to time by resolution of the Board of Trustees of the Village of Rockville Centre.
If, to the Board, the moving of the structure seems likely to cause injury to property, trees, electric wires, or otherwise cause hardship, inconvenience, or seems to be not conducive to public safety or welfare, such permit may be refused, the deposit fees returned and the bonds canceled.
